Sports Mole previews Blackpool's trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley as both teams look to return to winning ways.

Burnley take on Blackpool at Turf Moor on Saturday evening as both sides look to return to winning ways after they both suffered defeats before the international break.

Burnley caretaker boss Terry Pashley could make changes in defence after his side conceded four goals in their loss to Crystal Palace two weeks ago.

Pashley is taking control of his first match since being placed in charge after the departure of Eddie Howe and he may decide to recall the experienced Ross Wallace.

Pashley will also be hoping that striker Charlie Austin can add to his remarkable tally of 12 goals in nine league matches this season.

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway could make changes after his side were defeated 2-0 by Charlton Athletic in their previous match.

Thomas Ince, who has impressed for Blackpool this season, could return to the side, while Holloway could opt to replace Gary Taylor-Fletcher with Kevin Phillips.
